There’s an old saying that goes ‘ you can’t have your cake and eat it’. In essence it means that once you’ve eaten the cake, it’s gone and you therefore can’t have it. It’s all about the impossibility of having things both ways.
Well, working in my office I get the distinct impression that I could indeed eat cake and still have cake. This week for example, we were faced with the reality that our traditional ‘Cake of the Week’ would not be present, as Brian is on leave. We sort of over compensated for it..
On day two of the week, there was….. Raspberry & Lemon cake, Double chocolate fudge cake, brownies, lemon drizzle cake, pain au chocolat and a dozen donuts! We did the sensible thing of course, and didn’t attempt them all in one day – we saved the lemon drizzle for today..
Supplies are running low however, so maybe the saying was right? In a way, I could do with some respite as I’m not running the miles I normally would while I’m nursing a slight calf niggle.
What more cake tomorrow? Oh go on the, just a slice!
